    Why many people is buying Pio 435 and claiming that is future proof while is not?
    In the near future many tv s will be released that will support 1080p which will be far better than 720p.
    Many broadcasters intend to broadcast their programs at 1080p.
    So
    Why pio? :confused:

    Because it matches the spec hinted at by Sky when they start HD broadcasts in 2006, I think :rolleyes:


    But I have a Pioneer, so I'm biased :lesson:

    There is no evidence of broadcasters supporting 1080p in the near future. The EBU has stated that progressive scan is there preferred format, and so 720p is currently flavour of the month, with 1080p as a future option - however, they note that there isn't enough need for it to justify the bandwidth it would take.

    The existing Euro1080 service uses 1080i, and Sky have stated that they will support 720p and 1080i. The Pioneer (and LG, NEC) support both these resolutions, at the 50hz rate used by Euro1080, preferred by EBU and reported to be used by Sky, and does so over HDCP encrypted digital connections, also reported to be used by Sky.
